but yay!!!!! from 6/29 to today! also this sleeve was so much easier to get "done" then the other one, so I was happy about that. but so sad now, I have Nothing to do while watching TV! (I've actully consitered beading a swatch of my fabric, my Dad always said that I "have noisy hands") but yay!

okay here it is the timeline for the hope dress

started mock/ dress (never really did a mock for this dress) 6/29

I don't have to work tomarrow, jsut thurs through sat then it will be two more weeks of yoshi till I'm in Disney! whoo! must calm down... yeah... right

yes the new title that I use for every post. ;) anyway... am doing some beading and thinking about doing some quenya... but i was feeling computer deprived so i stoped for now, (also feeling fabric deprived but THAT is a differnt matter) did anyone realise taht "stoped" is a very strange word to look at.. (sorry random thought....)but oh well... I want to get about 6 or 5 clusters done today so I can be done beading by friday but it all depends on what the fam is doing... and not to mention that my show comes on tonight so... ;) new cute-ish guy on TV thus unatainable Dean form Supernatural. but Sean Bean and Craig (ooh Craig!) Parker is at the top of my list. too bad he's gay... *sigh* every woman in the world probably has the "too bad he's gay" problem huh? oh well I ve decided that the painting the fabric might be worth it but I'm not sure about the durabllity of the paint (perhaps i should got shopping for fabric paint I like?) anyway it doesn't add much, but it adds a tad of white (that I like my fabrics too dark anyway) and some sparkle, some "warm" sparkle, it's vaguely goldish but mostly white... but more testing is in order. later. *sigh* off to beading for me! only 11 to go! *sings*

okay.....

okay so my sleeves aren't as long or as wide as hers but if I had to emb and bead more fabric after this I think I would go insane! I think my next prject will be somthing "non" beaded. or somethin I have or can find most of, like the br dress or the GG, I had been thinking of being bad and doing the cranberry dres but the fact of no right trim (but I would "cheat" and use the GG trim) and the beadencrusted modesty panel is making me think that one over... ;)

so far

well I did a few clusters, but now thnking about attaching the sleeves I'm trying to come up with a way to make my dress stay on my shoulders better also I'm not so sure I'm likeing my lining so perhaps I'll rip it out later on and line it with smooth fabric (read as slippery, I used thin cotton), but I'll wait to see how it looks tomarrow. so the end is in sight! YAY! thanks all who commented!
lordofhaladin: (Default)
got the sleeve attached (or at least the hooks in,) had to shorten the sleeve about 6" so big bummer there, due to the fact that I emb and beaded more of the second sleeve, so... blah. but anyway this is definatly a "stand and look pretty dress" (I tried it on) (and I poped off one of the beads so had to repair, I beaded this when i wan't very smart about knotting and broken beads) the sleeve started out being about 6oz now its about 2 lbs. I cut it out to be about 2" below my knee, after beading etc (and with about 6" gone) its about 6" below my knee, so beading is VERY HEAVY! anyways... excues the messy room, my sis (the slob) is currently living in my room and her bed is in the backround.

here (yes very blurry) you can see how I put in the snaps (so I can turn the sleeves insideout to wash) and the hooks and eyes to hold on the sleeves (yes thire detachable!)

(this is where you can see my messy sis's bed) and the not so hidden hooks, so I can wear my dress sleeveless if I want to.

also this dress is a definate winter dress, suprisingly the velvet is the cool part! the sleeves are roasting!

my poor og got stuck so i had to rescue him, but aside from that I got the snaps on and I did one cluster. so 33 left, yay! blah.... I'm going to bed.
lordofhaladin: (Default)
I just got one thng done and had to add another, must put snaps on to keep the layers together....
lordofhaladin: (Default)
and I feel accomplished! I vaccumed did laundry (corection am doing the last of the laundry till tonight anyways) and SEWED!!!!! I tried on my hope gown again and guess what, I've lost weight since I made it, so I had to adjust it, again. so now it looks slightly like a bag, but not enought to bother me right now, also it was WAY longer then i remembered it (but I also remembered it fitting well)so I hacked off 3" in the front and re-hemed it (fun fun fun) and sewed in some bra strap things to hold them in place and keep my dress from falling off my shoulders, also i lined the finished sleeve and was in the middle of doing that when AA and Mom came home, so i had to stop (and since I hadnt gotten to eat I did that then too) I also re-enforced the top of my sleev getting it ready to put hooks on it and attac it to my dress. so thats all done today! left to do on that sleeve is hem the bit I left open so I can turn it inside out to wash and fit it into the arm scye and put pins where I want the hooks, and hem the scye in the dress. so for the hope dress I have to :

finish messing with the first sleeve
hem the arm scyes
finish the second sleeve and line and hem and etc it
get hooks for both sleeves
then I'm done! (I think)

so onto beading and possibly messing with the dress but not too sure yet if I feel like messing with it again....

as for the sleeve I have only 34 left (if I havent mentioned it yet!) yay!!!!

for my hope dress. I did 3 clusters abd one leaf, I HOPE I can get it doen in time!

watched TV and did 3 clusters. not much, but I'm about 14 away from half.... once again I found a broken bead, i hope they don't keep breaking after I'm done! or I'll have to keep silver-lined beads around, 'cause i know I didn't use a broken bead......
and iharthdarth is gone......... thus being depressed.

also have decided if I have time I'll do the vest for Jack/Jess Sparrow (yes i hate fake facial hair (I'm allergic to the adhesive except the one I can't find and I forgoth the name but it looks like milk and smells like garlic..) so I'm going a Jess Sparrow (my take on Jack)

yay!

did one cluster in less then one hour, and I even stoped in the middle! but now I have to work, (bah!) but the good part is that I counted the clusters and I only have 50 to go! oh, nad I re-paired on stem, that one was under too much stress (I didn't notice that part...) lunch time!

bah

feel bad today! I want to sew but... what? also I don't think I'll get my hope dress done for disney. I have 40 days to finish and about 60 clusters left, and I still have to line and attactch the sleeves. *sigh* oh well, but on a better note I did one cluster yesterday before bed.

sleeve two

as for progress, lets put it this way. I haven't done more then one cluster since I moved. a week ago. but on the bright side if I get 2 clusters done every day, I'll be done in 17-18 days. (meaning I have 63 to do. but it sounds better the other way. not much to post about but thought I better..... just not in the mood to bead since we moved. so sleepy! I'll post pics when I feel like I've made a dent in this sleeve.
